Cake-Smash Sessions

EDITDSC_1998-Edit

Can you believe it? You are planning for your baby’s first birthday! Probably one of the most important milestones in your baby’s life, and it is so bittersweet. Your child is growing up, with their own little personality that you adore so much. You want to remember this age, and a cake-smash is the perfect way to capture your ever-growing toddler, in a fun and exciting way. I have a variety of packages to choose from; add on milestone images, where I can photograph your little one before the mess. And our very popular ‘bath time splash’, which is a strong favourite for the children.

I offer a stripped back version of a cake-smash, with less fuss, and more focus on your gorgeous baby, enjoying their very first birthday memory. My wonderful cake-maker creates beautiful ‘naked’ cakes, with less buttercream, less colouring and sugar, and perfect for little ones to get messy with that taste incredible!

Babies & Beyond Sessions

xxUntitled-2

Babies

Your baby changes so much within the first year, hitting huge milestones along the way. All of a sudden, that tiny newborn has grown into a gorgeous, happy, bouncing bundle of smiles and its the perfect time to capture them. My baby sessions are perfect from around 4months+, when baby has strong head control, is more independent and full of precious smiles. I recommend booking before your little one is on the move, crawling or walking. But don’t worry if that tiny window has passed, I testimonial2have plenty of experience with active little explorers!

These sessions usually last around an hour, but I will work to your babies schedule, to ensure we get those big, wide eyed smiles. I have a huge selection of props, and I am more than happy to work with you if you have things you’d like to interpret into your session. These are your photos, and I want them to be perfect for your family.

I like to keep baby photos very neutral and pure, so please dress baby is soft coloured clothing, such as creams, whites, pale blues, greys or pinks. We want eyes to be focused completely on them, so nothing too bold and distracting works best.

Toddlers

This age can sometimes be forgotten; your toddler is full of life, energy and probably a little bit of attitude too, but thats what I love about them! They have so much imagination, and I feel like it needs to be remembered. A personality can really shine through a photograph, and that is what I aim to capture in my toddler sessions. I recommend booking a toddler session between 18m-4 years.

These sessions are very relaxed, with no real time frame. We interact, play games and most importantly have fun! I understand that toddlers don’t always want to cooperate, which is why we take plenty of breaks in between, so they usually don’t even realise what I’m doing.

Again, I like to keep my images very neutral, so all the attention goes to your child. This is why I find natural, pale coloured clothing works best. Keep it simple. I also love the timeless black and white photographs. They show your child and their beautiful face, and nothing else. If this is something you’d like to include in your session, then please just let me know, and don’t forget a black t-shirt.

My little studio

I have a beautiful home studio in a central location in Poole. Situated on a quiet residential road, its the perfect calm setting for your photography session with me. I love having a home studio, because it is very welcoming with a relaxed atmosphere, meaning your children can feel comfortable around myself.

Personally, I like to keep things very pure and natural. Children have the most beautiful expressions, and nothing should be forced. I want everyone to feel relaxed and enjoy the experience.

I welcome in many families to my home, capturing beautiful and timeless images for your family to treasure for a lifetime. Those first years of a childs life disappear before you know it, and having memories to look back on for years to come is what I love to capture.
